What a beautiful Sunday to go out and make some radio !
Planed to go on Mt. Bouquet F/CR-220 at 95km drive from home.
There are many towers at the top including a 60m big TV tower,it does not interfere with HF but with VHF it is harder
It is also a paragliding spot, and when I arrived there was none but the situation quickly changed… lot of mosquito around
Another view from north
The setup was my FT-817ND 5w into an EFHW between 2 trees
No NA worked despite the RBN reports.
Here a video from Roger @F5LKW/P who was in F/CR-204.
many thanks Roger
Was trying VHF too but can’t copy many stations, only one ! Roger recorded my signals in this short video.
I think I was deaf with the proximity of the TV transmitter and moreover my squelch was badly adjusted
You can see the 134km path between us.
To finish a beautiful panorama
I was finally able to catch the little fox that follows me everywhere, on the way back to the " Col du Bourricot " - read Donkey col
Many thanks all chasers
